Dancing in the Aisles

Welcome To Celtic Colours Live Chat

While Sundays in church are traditionally reserved for religious reflection, we’re thinking dancing in the aisles might catch on as a Tuesday tradition after tonight’s concert! With his impeccable timing, Sydney Mines fiddler Brent Aucoin is sure to tempt some to jump up and show their steps. He’ll be accompanied by Chéticamp native Joël Chiasson on piano, who has been known to step it off himself from time to time. Robert Deveaux is also from Chéticamp. A fiddler, piano-player, and singer, he is passionate about traditional Acadian song and is considered to be an important guardian of this living tradition. Tonight he’s teamed up with Nicolas Boulerice and Olivier Demers from Le Vent du Nord to present a collection of nearly-forgotten songs from Acadian settlers of the Chéticamp area. Coming from a family of well-known musicians—including her mother, Brenda Stubbert, and grandfather, Robert Stubbert—Tracey Bailey has been dancing her whole life. She will join her mother Brenda in this concert and share her unique style of dance, deeply-rooted in the Cape Breton tradition and influenced by the teaching and dancing of others.
